I never continue to be amazed by the ignorance and lack of historical perspective liberal letter to the editor writers display. I had to laugh at the claim that in the real world, people reject conservatism.
The truth of the matter is, in the fantasy perfect world that liberals dream about, everybody would make an above average wage, all kids would have high grades, and we would receive government benefits and care far greater than what we individually contribute. Everybody would have the job they love, an abundance of money and material possessions. And for the last 100 years, these socialist daydreamers have attempted to rewrite the laws of economics, human nature, and mathematics to prove their case and create their utopia.
Now, $16 trillion in debt and caught in an economic implosion that is impossible to escape, they try to blame Reagan, Bush, and Daines for the impending catastrophic end to our once great nation. Their years of wealth redistribution, war on capitalism, bribing of the populace with free handouts and dividing people have turned us into a nation adrift without purpose, meaning, morals, guidance, or conviction. Their careless spending, borrowing, and unending printing of money has devalued our dollar and destroyed our economic future.
True, those who are self-centered, lazy, uneducated, unmotivated, and unemployed do tend to favor those promising free ice cream over conservatives who would rather kick them in the butt and tell them to get a job. But soon enough, the cold hard reality of decades of liberal policies will perhaps awaken a populace which has been swindled out of its future.
In the real world, the natural world, it's “live and let die,” perhaps an unsavory and cruel realization, but true nonetheless. It will be interesting to see who survives the upcoming revolution.
